The Closet campaign is a work of art aimed at celebrating the return of the iconic Balenciaga Le City Bag, which was first launched in 2000. It was originally showcased by creative director, Nicolas Ghesquière, where it became one of the biggest staples in the early 2000s. Stars like Kate Moss made it what it is today.

The 2024’s Le City reiteration will bid ode to the archival designs, but still reinforce silhouettes that make it a new classic. The new bag will be made of Arena leather complemented with vintage details including original-sized studs, laced zipper pulls and lacquered leather handles as well as straps. This iconic bag will definitely be on every fashion darling’s radar this year — an accessory that will transcend time and season. 

The campaign also includes Balenciaga signature bags, Le Cagole and the Hourglass. This means, there’s more to come when it comes to Balenciaga, and we can’t wait to see what else they have in store this year.
